NGT’s managed wholesale VoIP service suite is being enhanced with Rodopi’s automated order management, customer care and billing solution

Golden, CO and San Diego, CA, - May 5, 2004 – New Global Telecom (NGT), the most reputable U.S. provider of outsourced telecom services, and Rodopi Software, a global provider of integrated solutions for next generation billing, management and customer care today announced an agreement through which New Global Telecom will incorporate Rodopi billing and OSS solutions as part of NGT’s 6DegreesIP suite of managed wholesale VoIP services.

This partnership will include an interface between the BroadSoftTM applications server platform and Rodopi Software’s applications that can be utilized by NGT’s service provider customers requiring an automated back office solution.

Other features of the Rodopi platform, including marketing support and an integrated payment gateway, will also be available through the partnership.
